Sneak Peek: Button Buddies vase

Here's another peek at the new stamp set Button Buddies. You can see the buttons were placed as flowers coming out of the vase. Cute, eh? Have you made a Twist Container (aka Sour Cream Container) lately? I love it here - embossed with the Square Lattice folder in the Big Shot. And that 1-1/4" striped grosgrain ribbon is yummy.

Twist Container instructions:
  1. Crank a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of card stock through your favorite embossing folder for the Big Shot.
  2. Place Sticky Strip on one short side of card stock and roll it into what'll look like a toilet paper roll, adhering it in place.
  3. Place 1" of Sticky Strip near edge of one side of the roll and squish sides together at end only.
  4. Fill with treat (a few Hershey Kisses, Starbursts or other item), and squish open end down so it's opposite bottom - see photo above.
  5. Add ribbon and tag.
Note: You can also staple the ends as shown in the photo. It just depends on the "look" you want your goody to have.
